seriously win7 is **** so a big shout out and ******* to people who claim its good. you know who i mean.

seriously what makes win 7 any good? i still think xp is superior.

HELL it can't even preview animated GIFs anymore. thats one reason why I have always hated OSX- nice to see windows is **** now too.

I like Windows7 a lot - more than XP - although XP is great too. You could definitely argue that maybe Windows7 should still be better than it is, considering it just feels like XP with a few extras, and XP was released years agao.

You can't seriously be suggesting an OS is worse just because it can't preview animated gifs? For me, that's far less useful than being able to view thumbnails of Paintshop Pro 9 files (.psp) for example - and you can't do that in XP.

I'll admit there aren't any major improvements, but there are loads of very small ones.
For example, the path in the save/open file dialogs is now a dropdown menu, so you can navigate more quickly.
If you create a new file from the right-click menu, it only selects the name (not the extension) so you can just type a new name and press enter - instead of having to type the extension as well.
You can open a folder in a new window.
If you copy a file, and another already exists with the same name, you can have it automatically renamed (very useful when merging image galleries, for example).
I also think the aero interface looks better (especially since you can make it bright pink if you want).
I like the window snapping feature.
I like the way files are stacked in the taskbar.
I found it much easier to set up file/printer sharing.
And lots more besides...

The fact that Microsoft haven't totally changed the way everything looks and works, is definitely a good thing.

The biggest negative for me, is probably the fact that they've given WordPad the dreaded ribbon interface. I use it a lot for just writing quick text files, but I may have to start using Word 2003 instead now. There are probably a few other bad points, but I can't think of any right now.

I wouldn't say I hate windows 7 (have been using it for a month now), but indeed I do feel it is limiting (almost claustrophobic) like OSX.

well i just dont understand why xp has a lot of great features and instead of improving those they simply remove them. it doesnt make much sense.

why would they remove gif preview? also the new search is pretty shit.

speaking of paint shop pro files. i believe thats more jaques or corels fault (they bought jaques, right?) instead of m$'s fault. i know i have thumbnails for PHOTOSHOP files (not saying thats what you get for using psp instead of ps but it probably has something to do with the dev. and if he implanted stuff and not your os)

New search is fine. It allows me to look into text files when I'm viewing results when I choose content view. Why don't you formulate more detailed criticism instead of comparing it to excrement. Maybe half the things you think are problems are just misunderstandings.

@MasterM:
What great features? So far, you've listed ONE feature.
Besides, animated gifs are obsolete anyway - the real question is "why haven't they added support for apng files?"

New search is fine. Maybe you just haven't learned how to use it properly yet?

The more I use windows 7, the more I dislike it's niggles but it's not bad - I just fail to see why people went crazy for it on release . That said it's miles better than Vista IMO.

I get annoyed at having no option to have a classic start menu (I find the Win 98 style menu the best, and a lot quicker for me than searching for my programs) although pinning is not too bad tbh, retarded unsigned driver enforcement (a ball ache as a hardware developer, always having to turn it off by hitting F8 on boot), and compatibility mode seems to be a bit hit and miss with the software I use.

The default task bar with just icons is kind of stupid IMO, I want to see the name of the application, and the file open. I soon changed that though .

I guess I will love it once I have some DX10/11 games haha

I've had no problems. I only run about 10 programs on my computer though.
Firefox
Thunderbird
FileZilla
Command Prompt
WinRar
Pandora
Multimedia Fusion
Adobe Fireworks

And some others every now and then.

I agree with you on the start menu thing - I had to spend quite a long time reorganizing it, pinning the programs I use the most. That was a bit of a pain, I must admit, but at least I shouldn't need to do it all again.

No problems with drivers / software compatibility / etc yet. but maybe I'm just lucky.

Inevitably, you can't please all the people, all the time...

No really i apologize. Win 7 is awesome.

It came with this Acer notebook i got just a few days ago. All i have installed is CS 5 and my wacom driver.

Worked fine for a few days. Just updated win a lot. So today i started working on my graduate film and it gave me a blue screen of death 3 times. At the third reboot my wacom tablet wouldn't work anymore.
I tried to reboot it and now all i get is a blue screen. Uninstalled the wacom driver in save mode but still i can't boot into windows and i have no clue what to do at all.

BSODs are usually hardware related. Maybe you got sent a faulty computer, since you say that's new too...

It's the thought that counts Phredreeke.

Yeah sound's like a hardware problem, or a driver problem.
